Women and Their Work present Austin based artist Virginia Yount in the exhibition Unsustainable Attainment. Through her paintings, collages, and sculptures, Yount depicts a near-future society of hoarders, shut-ins and escapists. Her work addresses environmental and economic collapse, surveillance, self-obsession, anxiety, and collecting by incorporating imagery of anxious piles of clutter, unread books, graffiti-covered land, discarded lottery tickets, paint piles, and the gathered remnants of a struggling society.
